Item description for Preaching John's Gospel: The World It Imagines by Dave Bland & David Fleer...

Overview
This newest title from Fleer and Bland is again designed specifically for preachers. Combining essays from top scholars and sermons from respected homileticians, Preaching John's Gospel includes contributors from a wide variety of Mainline and Evangelical denominations who value the role of scripture in faith development and preaching. Developed from the Rochester Sermon Seminar, the book is divided into two parts: The first includes essays on preaching the gospel of John, and is structured around the work of Gail O'Day's guiding essay "Preaching with John: Preaching as an Act of Friendship." The second half of the book consists of ten sermons from specific texts that incorporate the theoretical underpinnings of the book's first section. The essays and sermons are bound together by the same question: How can we draw our congregations into the world John has imagined for us?

Reviews - What do customers think about Preaching John's Gospel: The World It Imagines?

Helpful sermon resource  Feb 17, 2009
I found this book helpful in giving me different perspectives with which to approach the Gospel of John. The best part of this book are the sermons at the end of each essay demonstrating how the essay may be applied. Generally, the essays were thought provoking, but I wasn't super persuaded by the two essays identifying "friendship" as Johannine theme. It's an idea that seems a bit arbitrary: good for a couple of sermons, but not an overall theme.
Still the remaining essays were all interesting and useful in sermon preparation.
While the sermons are easy reading and practical, the essays tend to come from an academic perspective and take more thought to work through.
I have no problems recommending this book for preachers looking to preach a series on John, you'll find it a valuable resources.
